on the trunk space
No, trunk space is not a reason to buy a convertible. However, it does play a significant factor in the decision to buy one. My rule is simple: there must be enough room for a lady and I to take a 4-day weekend trip with luggage.
This means a medium-size luggage and maybe some small duffels. The current Z4 offers a more-than-adequate trunk for this purpose, the 2009+... who knows?
